CHOMSKY ALLSTARS – ‘Rhyme, Treason & Rhythm’
Part financed by the Strummerville charity, Chomsky Allstars’ debut album is a truly eclectic melting pot, featuring vocal cameos from Christy Moore, Drunken Balordi‘s Billy King, Joe Strummer and Bob Marley biographer Chris Salewicz, controversial Scots rapper Eastborn, Noam Chomsky and even Mahatma Gandhi.
Acoustic tracks are mixed seamlessly with the gritty eco-blues of ‘Bad Mood Rising’, the Afrobeat-inflected World Cup anthem ‘The Beautiful Gain‘ and the sensual funk of ‘Give Us Peace’ to create a concoction best described as Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros meets Rick Rubin.
